Please note that there is a further FQA document in the parent Guides and Reporting section of the website, should you want more information about the reports.
1. Academic Progress Tracking Report:
A) Minimum GCSE target grades are based on prior attainment data and are set using the new 9-1 grading system, as all students currently studying in Years 7, 8 and 9 will be sitting only the ‘new’ (reformed) GCSEs.
The diagram on the right illustrates how these new grades relate to the old A*-C / D-G grading system.
B) Progress in relation to these minimum target grades is assessed each term in every subject using the definitions below. Reports will continue to include assessment from previous terms for comparison.
Progress against expectations relates to a student’s individual target, rather than an age-related expectation. A student will be assessed as ‘secure’ if their current performance indicates that they are on track to achieve their GCSE target by the end of Year 11.
C) Attendance and Punctuality are also shown on all reports. The expectation is that students will have no lates and a minimum of 95% attendance.
2. Values Reports
The values report has a broader educational focus, with the intention of developing a range of valuable attributes that will prepare students for life after school. The values are taught in subject areas and via the pastoral system. There are two Values reports per year, in December and July.
All teaching staff contribute to the values report based on observation of each value during class activities and interactions. Individual staff contributions are averaged to create the report you receive.
